Cheese alfa 166 touring europe

Purchased a 2002 alfa166 (v6 3 liter) April this year to tour Europe provoking great hilarity and the usual derogatory comments about reliability etc from New Zealand mates and family.
A quick tidy up and refreshment of vital fluids had us on the ferry and we are still going 10 thousand miles later.Wish I'd read up on oil filter before starting!
Plenty of dings and adventures but writing to say thank you to the posters on this forum for sharing their knowledge.I would never have found the frayed wire to in the boot lid causing all the headlights to periodically fail without the forum's help.
In Sardinia now and the metallic green is a talking point immediately after "how much horsepower." i love this car!

PLEASE don't be offended when I say - I "hate you" Of course I don't mean it literally but to be touring in 166 I'm insanely jealous and especially in Sardinia.

Will you make it to the UK? Could arrange a 166 meet somewhere?
